Fatigue Severity Scale The Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) is meant to evaluate the impact of fatigue on a person’s life. (It doesn’t really measure "severity" but it is quite useful.) The FSS was developed by Lauren B. Krupps and colleagues in the late 1980s as a tool to assess fatigue in patients with multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus. The scale is sometimes referred to as the Krupp’s Fatigue Severity Scale in the medical literature. The FSS questionnaire is comprised of nine statements inquiring about the examinee’s sleep habits over the preceding week. Ratings are on a 7-point Likert scale, where higher scores indicate how strongly the patient agrees with the nine statements. It's been a hard day's night. I should be sleeping like a log. - The Beatles A score of 36 and above (out of a maximum of 63) indicates the presence of significant fatigue but typical scores are much lower.
Parkinson's Disease Fatigue Scale The Parkinson's Disease Fatigue Scale (PFS-16) is a patient-rated scale that measures fatigue - one of the non-motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's. The scale allows the measurement of the presence of fatigue (seven items) and also its impact on daily function (nine items) and takes around five minutes to administer. It can be used to assess levels of fatigue and measure any changes that treatment or lifestyle changes may effect. The PFS-16 is available for download by healthcare professionals or not-for-profit researchers. Anyone outside of these groups, e.g. commercial researchers, is asked to contact Professor Richard Brown (email@example.com) to request permission for use. (Brown et al 2005)
